I am still super amazed at myself that I succeeded in marking something challenging off of my personal bucket-list – in this case, SKYDIVING, and I want to share with all of you my first experience.

I say FIRST because I DO plan on doing this again.. And again.. And again!

Now, I’m not much of a risk taker by any means. But I am spontaneous. And I do like to push the limit from time to time.. And I always love a thrill that makes me scream from the top of my lungs (Cedar Point is my home away from home specifically for that purpose).

So when it came time for me to start my bucket list, this was the first thing I wanted to do. Spur of the moment, I just booked that seat. It would be the first time I got on a plane but would not land in one. Amazing.

Me at the Base of Eiffel Tower.


I’m currently 37 years old, and I have gotten the travel bug.  I have been quite a few places within the United States of America already, but only a handful overseas.  I’ve got a lot to catch up to, many places I want to visit, and not enough money to just get up and go!  I figure that I will be checking these places off my bucket list slowly, one destination at a time… But I definitely will complete it.  Check out my list and tell me what you think!

Don’t you hate deleting old photos?   I take so many photos both on my phone and on my camera that it’s hard to keep up and I still haven’t figured out the best way for me to store them all.  Recently I have been making it a small hobby to do something different and carry my camera wherever I go.  When I get the chance, I try to grab take a few shots here and there.  I was going through my Canon Powershot SX530 (BTW this is a pretty awesome camera!) and realized I have tons and tons of awesome pics that deserve to be shared!  I live in a beautiful city (which is more of biased opinion than anything else) and despite our many shortfalls, Toledo still has a lot of potential to become an even better place to live.  That said, I can’t see myself living here forever, but home is where the heart is, right??

Anyway, I wanted to share just a few of my favorite personal pictures that I was able to capture with you of my hometown before I retired the current SD card for a new one.  Check them out below. View Post
